Known Issues

  • Upgrading to Privilege Manager 10.8 causes a task to run to merge computer groups and remove unused system computer groups. This primarily affects the Application Control policies that are using resource targets/computer groups named All Windows Computers with Application Control Agent Installed. With 10.8, those policies will use the Windows Computers computer group and macOS will use MacOS Computers.

    If you want to prevent this automatic merge, modify the XML of this item:
    PrivilegeManager/#/item/xml/b2e02684-d154-48ca-9987-12b1759df822
    Add on line 2 <adc:Attributes>NoModify</adc:Attributes>.
  • When upgrading from 10.5 (and potentially other prior Privilege Manager versions), you may encounter an Item Not Found exception when first navigating to the console. The workaround for this is to recycle your app pools and then reload the console in your browser.
    When upgrading from 10.4 to the latest Privilege Manager version, the Admin menu might not load. The workaround for this is to recycle your app pools and then reload the console in your browser.
  • When setting the Monitor Resource switch to active on a computer resource, an error is thrown.
    Offline upgrades on multiple servers will need to be done manually.
  • The Directory Services Agent produced error messages about failed application control policy processing in the agent log.               
  • In IE11 the dates in the agent log calendar view are rendered in the same color as the background and only readable when selected.
  • With an approval policy targeting a PowerShell script (.ps1 file) via secondary file filter, the Approval Notice pop-up causes a critical error alert when accessing the .ps1 file via right-click Edit menu option.
                                  

macOS Specific                       

  • On endpoints using OneDrive, GoogleDrive, DropBox, or similar extensions, the endpoint will take about 2 min to correctly initialize the Finder Extension functionality after enabling the extension or after the upgrade to 10.8 with an enabled extension.
